In this talk we will build streaming data pipelines using Kafka, Connect and SQL-like syntax, and deploy infrastructure via configurations. An IoT, use case will be used to drive a scenario of device data reaching a time-series database, and how Kafka can be leveraged to operate and manage streaming topologies.
